I get an error after implementing basehold.it to my HTML-file

These are the first 21 lines of my HTML-file:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <title>CSS Zen Garden: The Beauty of CSS Design</title>

    <link rel="stylesheet" media="screen" href="style.css">
    <link rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" title="RSS" href="http://www.csszengarden.com/zengarden.xml">
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="//basehold.it/32">

    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0">
    <meta name="author" content="Dave Shea">
    <meta name="description" content="A demonstration of what can be accomplished visually through CSS-based design.">
    <meta name="robots" content="all">

    <!--[if lt IE 9]>
    <script src="script/html5shiv.js"></script>

The console in my chrome browser shows this error-message: "GET file://basehold.it/32 0 ()".

Do you know what I just did wrong?

I'm guessing you load this from a local file instead of from a web server, and so it's using the wrong protocol on the abbreviated href. Try using a full URL on that link:

    <link rel="stylesheet" href="http://basehold.it/32">
